Post-Printing

Assembly

Smush it into an Altoids tin.

How I Designed This

I went looking for dividers for Altoids tins and it seemed that everything I found was thickwalled and bombproof. But I'm not sure that dividers need to be bombproof if they are inside an Altoids tin. 1mm floor and walls should be plenty. Besides, thick walls take much longer to print. (But if you want thick walls for your dividers, there is plenty to choose from. Just keep looking.)

Anyway, I decided that I was going to have to create my own. And so I made the basic shell and then added various combinations of horizontal and vertical walls. Further combinations may appear here if I feel the need to create them.

It appears the 1x4 version is missing. It's in the two pictures. Was it perhaps missed in the latest update?

The 1x4 is not missing but rather misnamed. It's the file named "altoidsinsert1x3.stl". Sorry about that.

These are the best I've found (out of 4 I've printed so far). What did you use for the basis? I mean, what did you design them in?

I am tempted to create a version in scad so I can get smaller divisions, and I really want to attempt curving the walls so small parts can be pulled out more easily.

These were designed in TurboCad. I created the basic shell and then added various dividers as needed. These days, Fusion 360 has become my tool of choice and if I were to do more variants, I would probably recreate the design in Fusion 360.

Do you happen to know the radius of the corners?

I used a radius of 11.18mm. You can find, if you Google for it, all the dimensions that you'll need.

nice..very usefull i never throw the cases out so this is perfect

I have the same affliction. Can't bear to throw out an Altoids tin. They are just too useful.
